Benefit regarding worship

Types of worhip:

1. An act of worship which is done for Allah and according to the way of the Messenger it is an act that goes according to the Sunnah.

2. An act of worship which is done for Allah but not according to the way of the Messenger it is an act of innovation (bid’ah).

3. An act of worship which is not done for Allah but according to the way of the Messenger is an act of minor Shirk.

4. An act of worship which is directed to other than Allah and is not according to the way of the Messenger is an act of major Shirk.

It is important for the Muslim to place these different conditions in mind before engaging in any act of worship. Is our act based upon Tawheed, sincerity and conformity to the Sunnah or is it based upon Shirk, insincerity and innovation?

May Allah guide us to what he loves and is pleased with.
